    We've got as good a shot as anyone if Bryant stays healthy.

    I'm not convinced that Bryant can stay healthy.

    For all the mixed feelings we have about playing OU....think about how OU fans feel about the prospect of being matched up against Clemson. I'm positive we're in their heads in a BAD way.

    I want to believe in this team to win in the playoff, but every time I try to I remind myself of our kicking game and I can't escape the feeling that it will cost us a game down the stretch.

    OU fans are arrogant and think they can beat anybody.

    I don't know, that 40-0 beatdown didn't affect their confidence any the next year.

    2 teams I have absolutely zero fear and would not worry at all about playing in the playoff --

    Oklahoma
    Ohio State

    Imagine these numbers if he could catch in traffic or dive for a ball:

    I was pretty annoyed at his lack of dive on the deep ball in the NC State game but I also think the annoyance with the one specific play I’m thinking of is unfair. If you watch the replay he lost his cleat right before the time he would have needed to dive.

    Cain needs to move to the 2 position with Overton as the primary guy at the 9 spot.

    I was more annoyed at the deep shot to him that was right at the pylon that Bryant placed a perfect ball to him and it went through his hands and over his shoulder pad because there was tight coverage. Traffic or not, the defender didn't tip the ball or interfere with Cain - that's a catch he has to make.

    I think Baker Mayfield can hit a 5 yard slant/curl route, which took us a full half to figure out how to defend smh. Finley was 15-15 at one point. Honestly I like us against anybody else though. Assuming we're healthy. Imagine our d-line after Big Dex has a few weeks off to get better.

    Clemson head coach Dabo Swinney said on ESPNU radio on Thursday that they are hopeful they will get cornerback Mark Fields back next week.

    Fields will not play against FSU on Saturday, which will mark the third straight game he has missed since injuring his foot against Syracuse last month.

    Oklahoma has zero defense. They'd get beaten by every team currently in the top four

    We were also inured as hell at corner going into the game. We played soft coverage all night for a reason.

    Yes. Most OSU fans have bent the knee after our last two games. OU fans have memory-holed our few...

    Not sure what 0SU fans you've been running into. All the ones I know, or ran into, still think we are just little ole Clemson and should bow to them and their 8 (2 fake) titles. Alabama fans have been more humbled by their loss to us...and that is saying a ton.

    Learn something new every day, but after this osu and Oklahoma being giant bitches discussion began I started looking into record stuff and Ohio state has an all time losing bowl record.

    Kinda surprising

    I've always liked that site with the Clemson/South Carolina comparison. Most rivals just want more boxes but Clemson is going for the blackout. Screenshot_20171111-090140.png

    Such a great time for our football program. Not optimistic about our title chances with our qb situation, but we’ve beaten FSU three straight times and have the chance for three straight acc titles. 40-3. Amazing.

    Bryant is just so puzzling. He'll make incredible throws and then make awful throws. He has the ability just has to put it together. If we can get past Miami I could see him putting it together during bowl practice. We've seemed to do incredible well there every year

    Not sure, but they seem to be peaking as the season progresses for sure. Depends on how healthy we are on defense. Whole different ballgame with Dex/Kendall/Carter/Edmond/Fields.

    If we can get into any semblance of a passing rhythm offensively, I like our chances against anyone. The game will basically be a Clemson home game in Charlotte as well.
